Vintage Wrapping Paper – Kitsch Up Your Gifts in a Jiffy!

Want your present to stand out at your next White Elephant, Birthday or Office Party? Sure you do. A sure fire to make that happen is to use vintage wrapping paper or to try your hand at a few kitschy and crafty gift wrapping methods. From pom-poms to paper clips boy do we have some groovy inspiration for you. I have gifts on the mind with my hubby’s birthday and our wedding anniversary this month so I thought I would share some of the fun pictures I have been perusing.

My favorite from Better Homes and Gardens Gifts to Make Yourself are the Personalized People with their fake eyelashes.

Thank you Charm and Poise for these adorable scans. I am smitten on the gifts with ties and lace collars.

I have a jumbo size bag of pom poms in an array of sizes that just exploded all over my office so this idea from Better Homes and Gardens Gifts to Make Yourself would not only help me clean it would be adorable!

I love the lion head that looks like a character from The Banana Splits Show and kitty is purrrfect! Thanks again Charm and Poise.

This office theme wrapping from Better Homes and Gardens Gifts to Make Yourself would have fit right in on the pages of Naughty Secretary Club: The Working Girls Guide to Handmade Jewelry.

    Wonderful finds here! Also, I found something interesting I thought I would share…from something I wrote this month…

    Hallmark is seriously leaving money on the table by not responding to the interest in this stuff, why they don't bring out a line of their own vintage designs is beyond me.

    Hi Vintage Paper Fans!
    I hate using "real" vintage wrap, because it's expensive and hard to find. Have I got a web site for those of you that feel like I do about using it up! Whether for scrapbooking, decorating or wrapping, it is perfect, as it is true VINTAGE REPRODUCTION WRAPPING PAPER AND GIFT TAGS! Hooray! Finally a company that is catching on to the vintage/retro
